‘Dunkirk,’ ‘Darkest Hour’ and More Show Oscar’s Favor for Period Films in Craft Categories

Oscars are like time capsules, offering examples of the movies that film-industry workers admire during any given year.

The nominations for the 90th Academy Awards, announced Jan. 23, show that voters in the 10 artisan categories are often in sync with the Academy’s other branches. For example, Fox Searchlight’s “The Shape of Water” led overall Oscar nominations, with 13; it was also the easy leader in below-the-line races, with seven bids in the 10 categories.

The artisan nominations — don’t call them tech categories, please! — also gave six noms to “Dunkirk,” and “Darkest Hour” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” received four apiece.

But artisan voters also showed an admirable willingness to consider films that were ignored elsewhere in Oscar voting. Films such as “Wonder,” “Kong: Skull Island,” “Baby Driver,” “Blade Runner 2049” and “The Last Jedi” earned their only nominations in the artisan races (“Blade Runner 2049” scored five artisan noms; “Last Jedi,” four).

Detective Pikachu Cast Revealed as Principal Photography Begins
The first live action Pokemon movie is now one step closer to hitting the big screen as filming has officially started on Detective Pikachu with an impressive cast list.

I still haven't quite wrapped my brain around the fact that we're getting a Detective Pikachu movie, let alone with Ryan Reynolds providing the voice of the titular Pokemon. Frankly, the fact we've gone this long without a live-action Pokemon film is baffling in and of itself, but moreso our first one is Detective Pikachu. The game itself (from which the film borrows its story) hasn't even launch in the States, but gamers will finally get their chance to check it out in March, which will
